Hello and welcome to this thing we’re doing where we help you figure out what you’re gonna put in your mouth this week. Some of these are recipes we’ve tried, some of these are recipes we’re looking forward to trying, all of them are fucking delicious. Tell us what you want to put in your piehole or suggest your own recipes, and we’ll talk about which things we made, which things we loved, and which things have changed us irreversibly as people. Last week, we made dumplings.
What is a salad, really? Are you thinking of a bowl of greens with some chopped up veggies sprinkled on top, drizzled with an elegant dressing? Well this post isn’t about that. This is about the ambigous selection of foods that fall under the salad umbrella, but cagetorically reject lettuce as a concept, consisting instead of a protein and/or a carb, interspersed with finely chopped morsels of other foods added for flavor and color, mixed with a precisely curated blend of spices. You will not find lettuce here, oh no. I debated even excluding salads with parsley, but I decided to include them for you, if you are the kind of person who finds parsley important. Many of these salads would do well on a sandwich, but a lot of them will hold up pretty well on their own. Take one to a picnic, a potluck, or possibly place them beside one of these.

This one is paleo, just FYI.
